Rudy Giuliani’s war on fun continues! The New York City mayor’s latest odd bid to rid Gotham of sin is to dig up a Prohibition-era law banning nightclubs without cabaret licenses from letting their patrons to shake their thang, according to the VILLAGE VOICE.
Bar owner Jim Marshall was ticketed last year when a fire marshal spotted two girls dancing to a live band. “I actually knew the law,” Marshall says. “I just didn’t think it would be enforced at that level — a couple of girls shaking it while the band was playing.” If Marshall’s patrons insist on wiggling, he could be shut down for an entire weekend.
The Dance Liberation Front has scheduled the “Million Mambo March” in hopes of bringing attention to what they feel is a free-speech issue.
